So I promised some content in my blog, so here goes.
When you build and you are picking brick, have your sales rep take you out to see it on a house! We picked off the little sample, signed paperwork, did a pre-con meeting, and THEN we drove by a house our sales rep told us had our chosen brick. We both liked it...a lot, but my wife felt strongly that was NOT what we picked. So today she made an extra trip out to the model to look at samples again and sure enough, what we saw was exactly what we picked.
So we could have saved some heartache had we took a little time when picking colors.
